I hope someone can help me....I recently purchased these speakers but the left one doesn't sound too great...I can hear static over the anything played and the woofer makes a strange sound that can only be heard when nothing is playing....do I need to update my soundcard or make some changes to the settings?

Please help!

I don't think it's likely that the speakers are at fault - unless a previous set of speakers with a similar configuration worked. I think it is more likely that you do need to change a sound card setting. Can you tell us what your sound card is, and what configuration of speakers you had previously.

I should also have suggested that you check that the jack plug is pushed all the way in. These can sometimes be a bit tight in the socket.

can you tell me how to access the soundcard settings? (sorry!)

You can access this by right clicking on the speaker icon on the taskbar or via "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Conrtol Panel.
